2022 Semana Nautica Ocean Swimming Point Series

The Semana Nautica Festival will recognize an outstanding male and female ocean swimming athlete in 2022 with the Semana Nautica Ocean Swimmer of the Year Award.

To qualify for consideration, the recipient will have to compete in the following ocean swim races during the Semana Nautica Festival:

1) 2-Mile Ocean Swim (June 25, 2022)
2) one of the two Reef & Run 1-mile ocean swims (June 30, 2022 and July 7, 2022)
4) either the 3-Mile Ocean Swim (June 26, 2022) or the 6-Mile Ocean Swim (July 10, 2022)

IMPORTANT DETAILS

For each of these swims, points will be allocated equal to the participant’s overall finishing place in his/her gender.

If a participant swims in more than one of the weekly Reef & Run qualifying events, the best finish will be used for consideration. The same applies to swimmers who complete both the 3-mile and 6-mile – the best finish of the two will be used for the point standings.

Swimmers who are unable to compete in the 3-mile or the 6-mile ocean swims will be considered for the award but will be handicapped by an additional 40 points added to their total.

The two Semana Nautica Ocean Swimmers of the Year will receive a free entry for the final Reef & Run boat to beach swim on August 18, 2022 and will be recognized at the conclusion of that swim race. The male and female recipients of this annual award will also be memorialized with his and her names on an honorary plaque at the Cabrillo Bathhouse.

WETSUIT POLICY

Wetsuits are allowed if the individual swim event allows for them. The 2-mile, 3-mile, and 6-mile do not officially allow wetsuits. They are allowed at Reef & Run.
